The roads are stilly icy and there‘s a three day weekend to finish my household chores and school work, so there will be plenty of reading time today. I finally finished my #CovertoCover book last night, and I‘m going to switch between audiobooks while working on the puzzle or doing housework. I also need read this #LitsyBookClub choice that I may have waited until the last minute to start.

StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego I've tried to read Under the Volcano, but could not get into it. Audio is probably a good option. 10h
Daisey @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego I‘ve listened to some of it and I‘d have to say I‘m not sure I‘m absorbing much. 8h
CafeMom I love puzzles, how fun. 7h
Daisey @CafeMom I haven‘t put together a puzzle on my own in forever; it‘s too distracting from the other things I feel I need to do. Over Christmas I started on one with family and didn‘t get to finish it, so it seemed a good idea for this long weekend. 3h

Had fun reading both Mr. Penumbra books.Also enjoyed reading Sourdough both for #LitsyBookClub & #CoverToCover now I‘ve got to find Robin Sloann‘s Kickstarter book, Annabel Scheme! 🥖 📚 🥖

Daisey Someday I have got to get around to reading more of his books! 6d
tpixie Ajax is about 2 hours. It‘s a prequel. 24 hours was kind of fun. Light reads. Easy farming listens!! 6d

This year, I‘m looking at my reading goals as more participatory. I will continue to set a 100 book goal on Goodreads, but the others are mostly about reading with others instead of a specific list.

I will also continue to track reading of library and owned books, but I‘m not setting any kind of goal.

First book of the #Readathon weekend completed! This book includes the stories of three different people in the same apartment building told as confessions. It is stories of the choices and maybe mistakes that they‘ve made and demonstrates how sharing those stories helps them to move forward.

#WeeklyForecast #CurrentlyReading

🔹I started Three Floors Up, this month‘s book for #LitsyBookClub, on audio today.

🔹I need to finish and review a #NetGalley #middlegrade ebook, The Tornado.

🔹My current at school read is The Game Changer.

🔹I‘m working my way through the #NotionClub section of our current #FellowshipofTolkien read, Sauron Defeated.

Cinfhen Very interested in your tagged book!! Thoughts??? Please 🥰 2mo
Daisey @Cinfhen I just started yesterday, so I‘m not far enough in to have much of an opinion. I‘m enjoying the description, but I‘m not at all sure where it‘s going. 2mo
Cinfhen I‘ll await your #BookReport 😄 2mo
Cinfhen 👋 Hi!! How‘s Three Floors Up going??? 2mo

I enjoyed this memoir that blends the story of the author‘s season in a traveling sideshow act with her mother‘s life after a serious stroke. The way the two parts were woven together worked well, but I did enjoy the stories about the sideshow more. It‘s not something I ever really felt the need to learn, but it was interesting. I also enjoyed the bits of history she included (see the comments for my favorite).

I started this month‘s @litsybookclub pick on my way to work this morning and continued listening on my evening walk. I didn‘t quite know what to expect from the blurb, but so far I‘m intrigued by the stories of joining the sideshow.

BarbaraTheBibliophage I really enjoyed this one! 3mo
Daisey @BarbaraTheBibliophage I think I saw your review when I shelved it on a Goodreads last night. I'm really enjoying the stories of the sideshow so far! 3mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Daisey Nice! It‘s certainly a unique story. 3mo

With our #LitsyBookClub discussion coming up quickly, I gave in and added the audio along with my Kindle copy. This morning was a beautiful time to listen, but I think I like reading this book better than listening so I‘m still going back and forth when I can.

TalecArashi Oh, what a lovely photo :D 4mo
Daisey @TalecArashi Thanks! It was a beautiful sunrise as I left for work this morning. ☀️ 4mo
